FABRICATOR 



Volume Eleven 





A Book 



Published by the Class of 



Nineteen Thirty-Three 



of the 



NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL 



at 



New Bedford, Massachusetts 



TO 

FMEB E. BUSBY 

In appreciation of his tireless effort and in 
admiration for his genial personality and 
strong character which have caused him to be 
highly esteemed by the Student Body, we 
affectionately and gladly dedicate the 1933 
volume of the Fabricator. 




OUR FOUNDATION 

Since the world's beginning man's existence was made pos- 
sible by the basic fundamentals of food, and shelter. 

Even in the infancy of his existence, however, clothing has 
been one of his chief problems. 

The New Bedford Textile School has for it's basic purpose, 
the training of men possessing great proficiency in making and 
supplying this necessary commodity. 



foreword 



Now that the time for parting has come, our regret is tempered by the 
knowledge that real Textile spirit does not end with this class, nor are friend- 
ships, held sacred through three years, easily cast aside. 

Please do not take our efforts too critically — remember, it is taken in 
good spirit and with the intent to offend no one. May that which follows 
meet with your approval. 

We, The Fabricator Staff, sincerely express our hearty thanks and appre- 
ciation to Mr. William Acomb for his invaluable assistance given us in com- 
piling this book.

HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL 

THE New Bedford Textile School was established by the trustees of the 
New Bedford Textile School and incorporated in accordance with Chapter 
475, Acts of 1895. The school opened for day students October 1899. The 
first year enrollment was 11 day students and 183 evening students. The 
first building was 64 by 100 feet, three stories high with an annex of 1 2 by 67 
feet for the engine and boiler room. In 1902 Knitting and Chemistry depart- 
ments were added to the curricula. In 1905 due to the increase of students an 
addition carrying the building to the Maxfield street line was built. The third 
addition was put up in 1911, on the north side of the original building. These 
two were connected by a tunnel and bridges. In this addition the Mechanical, 
Chemistry and Designing departments were established. Another expansion 
was necessitated in 1922 and the Maxfield street building was extended west 
to the line of the original building. In this addition, the C. Y. P. and Weaving 
departments were given ample additions on the first and second floors respec- 
tively. On the third floor a fine gymnasium was built. 

At present the school is one of the most sanitary, ample and efficient textile 
schools in the country. The present building contains 50 rooms with over 
100,000 square feet of floor space. Its equipment represents an outlay of over 
$275,000 most of which has either been donated or loaned.

DEPARTMENTS 

THE Chemistry, Dyeing, and Finishing departments under the guidance of 
Mr. Busby, are very popular. Mr. Busby has, as able assistants, Messrs. 
Brookes, Weymouth, and Broadfoot. These departments consist of two fine 
up to date laboratories, weighing room, lecture room, and a print room. Con- 
verting and finishing machines are located in the basement beneath these rooms. 
These departments turn out able and efficient men. 

The foundation of the cotton fabric lies in the Cotton Yarn Preparation 
department. This department under the head of Mr. Holden, and assisted by 
Mr. Gourley, is one that demands one's keenest attention. The equipment from 
breaker to twister is of the most modern type. A thorough knowledge in yarn 
preparation and testing is gleaned from this department by the student. 

Next in line are the Warp Preparation, and Weaving departments, under 
the head of Mr. Acomb. Mr. Acomb's able assistants, Mr. Beardsworth, and 
Mr. Fawcett prove that they know their wares. When a student has finished 
his studies and training in these departments he has in his possession a very 
fine asset. 

Mr. Holt as the head of the Design department is also assisted by Messrs. 
Beardsworth, and Fawcett. Weaves and cloths of all kinds are analyzed and 
designed here. 

Under direct care of Mr. Manning is the Knitting department. Besides 
being fully equipped with modern knitting machines it also enfolds a new silk 
winding room, a testing lab, and a dyeing room. The testing lab also boasts 
of a microscopic camera which was constructed by Mr. Manning. This de- 
partment gives the student a thorough training in both theory and practice. 

The Mechanical department isn't as simple as it sounds. It comprises 
steam engineering, mechanics, machine shop, mill engineering, drafting, elec- 
tricity, etc. All these are capably handled by Mr. Crompton and two worthy 
assistants, Messrs. Walton, and Bayreuther. This department occupies a good 
part of the new building's first and second floors. Students graduating from 
this department prove to be valuable in the textile world.

1933 THE FABRICATOR 



CLASS HISTORY 

BEFORE the graduation of the Class of '33 necessitates our leaving the stately- 
portals of New Bedford Textile School, let us drift back and review some 
of the outstanding events of the last three years. 

This period has been a happy mixture of books, sports, socials and a 
desire to understand and help one another. Our successes during this period 
will be invaluable to our future, and it is only with regret that we see our 
school days drawing to a close. 

Let us reminisce. It is with a smile now that we visualize that dreaded 
day when some irresistible force drew us to Textile for registration. What a 
sight met our startled eyes — lordly seniors — pompous juniors — burly letter 
men. Is it any wonder that our insignificant attempts to be recognized were met 
with disdain. To complete the demoralizing of our scattered wits we heard a 
roaring, Coome! which nearly started a stampede. 

After a week of uneasiness it dawned on us what a fine bunch of fellows 
attended Textile and a rosy future awaited us under the friendly guardianship 
of the upper classmen: — as the lofty seniors reached down to help us out of 
the rut in which we felt we had fallen. 

Lectures and books appeased our thirst for knowledge, under the apt 
tutorship of various members of the faculty. To the faculty we owe not only 
our higher education but the creating in us a desire to acquire lofty ideals and a 
dignity that was to prove unimpeachable. The theoretical and the practical 
were to be imparted to us in a manner that gave us a thorough understanding 
for future reference. 

Soon the necessity for class officers was realized and the class leaders were 
chosen. The officers being: — President, John Munroe; Vice President, David 
York; Treasurer, Roger J. Gentilhomme; Secretary, Statia Strahoska. 

After we became accustomed to the routine we were soon pledged to the 
various fraternities. Freshman material did much to make the soccer team a 
success, those making the grade were Clarke, DeMarest and McArdle. 

After soccer came basketball and we were represented with Clarke, Mc- 
Ardle, Baldwin, York, Williams and Gobeil. 

Baseball found McArdle, Clarke, DeMarest, Gobeil, Lague and Munroe. 

To complete our first year at Textile we successfully passed the finals — 
the toughest hurdle to be overcome. 

The second year was eagerly awaited and in the Fall we returned to carry 
on our careers. The soccer pitch found Clarke, McArdle, Gobeil, DeMarest, 
Munroe, Anderson, Yosefek, Jasionek. The basketball court found McArdle, 
Clarke, York, Gobeil, DeMarest, Anderson, Galligan, and Williams. Tennis 
called Warner, Delano, Clarke, Mikus, Anderson, York and Williams. Baseball

THE FABRICATOR 19 3 3 

found McArdle. Clarke. Lague, DeMarest, Gobeil. Anderson, Delano, Jasionek 
and Munroe. 

The class officers were as follows: — President, Raymond Warner: Vice 
President, William McArdle: Treasurer, James Lague: Secretary Statia Stra- 
hoska. 

Too soon the second year slipped into the past and we found ourselves 
on the threshold of our senior year — our last at "Dear Old Tech". 

It is with pride that we survey our past accomplishments — proficiency in 
studies, sports and socials. We are truly seniors. — suave, fun-loving yet dignified, 
masters of all with which we have come in contact, yet saddened that we must 
leave our school and our classmates. 

Our officers for this vital year were as follows: — President. Raymond 
Warner: Vice-President. William McArdle: Treasurer, James Lague: Secretary, 
Statia Strahoska. 

In spite of the devastating effect caused by the depression, our class ran two 
successful Senior class dances, both financially and socially. Much credit being 
due to the various committees comprised of John Munroe. James Lague, Louis 
Brody, John Frodyma, Roger Gentilhomme and Norman Gobeil. 

Naturally our class was outstanding in athletics. In soccer Captain Al 
DeMarest led McArdle, Clarke and Gobeil. 

While in basketball Billy Clarke was captain, and McArdle, DeMarest, 
Gobeil, York, Lague and Williams helped make the seniors supreme. Tennis 
will no doubt depend on Delano. Clarke. Warner, Mikus and Williams. It is 
assured Bill McArdle will lead in baseball with Clarke. Delano, Lague, De- 
Marest, Gobeil and Munroe as able assistants. 

Here must be recalled the Seniors' undefeated, untied, football team. As 
Freshmen we organized a team to play the Seniors. We won easily. Since then 
we have played all challengers and still we are undefeated. 

After mid-year finals our plans for the Senior Prom and Graduation caused 
us to study with a new zeal to prepare for the last few weeks of school. Early 
preparations for the Finals left our undivided attention for complete enjoyment 
of our Prom held at Finn's. And did we enjoy it! 

Commencement, with all its dignified formalities, successfully crowns our 
careers at tech. Soon, with the aid of our trusty diplomas we expect to step 
into the business world to carry on with continued success. 

To those who follow, we leave the school and its traditions, knowing 
that they will strive to their utmost to carry on in our places. 

To the school, its faculty and its various aides, we wish to express, not only 
our appreciation for their efforts, but also the sincerity with which they shaped 
our various careers. 

Now if the class of 1933 will bear in mind it's motto. "Strive to Succeed", 
they will go far towards reaching their goal.

patient and a true friend to all. Her weakness for blue eyes 
and light hair get her a lot of kidding which she takes with

THE FABRICATOR 1933 



CLASS PROPHECY 

BANG! Bang! Bang! I was awakened from the half sleep, into which I 
had fallen during my all night ride on the Red Dog Stage, by gun shots 
and blood curdling roars. My coach pulled up to a groaning stop in front of 
the Golden Nugget Bar. The thunder of hoofs grew louder, and then a band 
of horsemen swept down the one street of the desert town. The place became 
miraculously deserted as everything in sight was shot to pieces. The door was 
jerked open and a bewhiskered, grizzly, dirt-covered face was jammed inside. 

The owner bellowed, "Up with your hands and step out here, you 
mug." As I took a second look at the bandit, something familiar caught my 
attention. Could this be true? How impossible. 

"Demi, you old dog, how in the world did you ever come to be out here 
like this? It is Demi, isn't it?" I was highly excited. 

"Ray! Ray Warner, you old son of a sea cook!" he yelled as his face 
lighted with recognition. 

It was my dear friend, Al DeMarest, and after much babbling and back 
slapping he told me how he became a bandit. It seems he had married a certain 
girl back east, called Lil. She kept him so close to the straight and narrow 
path he just had to run away, and circumstances led him to his present pre- 
dicament. 

"Well", I said, "a great many things have happened in 17 years. That 
is all it is, you know. We left dear old Textile School in 1933." 

Then I told him that my company had sent me out to investigate the 
claim made by some Hanson of the Lazy Bar X ranch that there was oil on 
that ranch. 

"Lazy Bar X? Hanson?" he exclaimed. "Have you got a surprise coming?" 

"Why?" I queried. 

"Well, let's go into the Golden Nugget and I will tell you." As we walked 
up to the bar, he led me directly to the bartender and said, "This is Norman; 
I'm sure you remember Gobeil. He came out West with a couple of tank cars 
of solution he made for water-proofing fabrics and made a fortune selling it 
here in Red Dog, Arizona for the Red Eye." After Norman and I had re- 
newed our old friendship, we talked of all the other fellows at school and 
strange as it seems fate must have gathered them all in this God-forsaken place. 
Demi had a bunch of cut-throats in his gang. He called them all in and intro- 
duced me to my old friends. Many I would have never been able to recognize. 
They were Al Malick, his cook, which explained Demi's dirty disposition; 
Steve Delano, Roger Gentilhomme, a most vicious bandit; Lou Brody, and 
Henry Gatonska. 

"Do you know that Hanson on the Lazy Bar X is Charlie Hanson?" Demi 
asked, before I had completely recovered from my first surprise. "And what 

30

is more, Tubby Munroe owns the Lazy Bar X. He made a wad on some mer- 
cerization scheme of his and sunk it all with a worthless piece of land. Charlie 
is foreman, Dave York and Billy Clarke milk hands, while Barney Cohen, 
Fred Geyer, Gordon Hall and Cierpial ride herd. Oh! yeah, Edith Morris 
keeps house and cooks down at the ranch." 

"How come you don't seem to fear the law, Al?" I asked as it occurred 
to me. 

"Law? Haw! Haw!" he roared with delight at the relish of the joke. 
"Bill McArdle is sheriff and I pay for protection. Right now I've got Ruth 
Viera, a captive in my cave held for ransom. She inherited a lot of do-re-me." 

"How about the rest of the gang?" I asked. "Well, Ray Williams runs 
the Cut Throat Barber Shoppe down the street, right next to him is Stra- 
hoska's place, the Greasy Bean House. Further down the road is the Red Dog 
Livery Stable run by Giluk, Bergeron, Ed Sullivan and Bates." 

Just then a little, short, worn out man with a shabby Western Union 
uniform came in and called "Wire for Ray Warner". Were the surprises 
never to cease? The old man was Frank Mikus. He gripped my hand with 
his and nearly shook my own off. 

Upon opening the message, its contents appeared before my eyes. "Gone 
broke stop shift for yourself stop". 

J. C. Lague, 
President Rejuvenated Oil Co., Inc. 

"What rotten luck", I growled. "How am I to get home?" 

"Why go Home?" Demi asked as he finished the message I passed him. 

"Yes, why go home?" chimed in Gobby and Mike. 

"But what will I do?" I asked. 

"Come along with me", Demi offered. 'The work is easy and it pays 
well". 

"O. K." I grasped the opportunity. "I know I will feel at home; but 
let's go over to the General Store and get me a real outfit." 

We all walked across the street and entered the Red Dog General Store. 
Right then and there I passed out. It was too much for me. The proprietor 
of the General Store was none other than Bill Smith, himself.

CHEMISTRY CLASS OF 19 34 

SEPTEMBER of 1932 brought back those survivors of the class of 1934. And 
how! We started the new term with a bang with the instructors trying in 
vain to quiet and discipline us. The mysteries of Quantitative held its terrors 
for us. 

In Steam the class set a record. What kind of a record — well we can't 
go into that. 

We were all acquainted with one another which was a great help. At 
least we learned from the previous year that a desk locked was worth more 
than two unlocked. 

Our star athletes were again in the limelight this year. Cleveland and 
Gero on the soccer field were unexcelled. Gero represented us on the basket 
ball court, while in baseball we had Cleveland as luminary. 

In class elections we elected the following: — President, Howard Bates; 
Vice President, Laurence Rossiter; Treasurer, Edmund Dupre; Secretary, Irv- 
ing Frost.

GENERAL COTTON AND SPECIAL 
CLASS OF 1934 

THE second year General Cotton class is strongly represented. The lads in 
this course are the boon and worry of their instructors. Without them 
the school could not exist. Their noisy banter keeps things on the up-and-up. 

The roll call includes such fellows as: 

Antone J. Giante Manuel Machado 

Ernest H. Hall, Jr. Laurence E. Rossiter 

Francis A. Kuwaski Walter P. Schoczolek 

Frederick W. Sylvia. 

This year's design students are Raymond E. Beauvais, Albert D'A. Silva, 
and Robert A. Wilkinson. These lads dissect cloths and weaves like nobody's 
business. 

These special students are in a class by themselves and need no recom- 
mendation; Cecil G. Kleeb, David H. Judson, Mitchell Ciborowski.

A STAMPEDE? No, only a horde of insignificant freshmen seeking admit- 
tance at Textile. Our first day at school we were introduced to that game 
of "give and take". We gave money — they gave receipts for books, the con- 
tents of which seemed wholly unfathomable, and remain such even today. 

After our first attack of stage fright, the routine did not seem so appalling 
as was first visualized. We soon became part of the school — and what a part. 
We made our presence felt from the first, our taking ways being rewarded with 
a miscellaneous collection of beakers, burners, books, and also with special trip 
to Mr. Smith's sanctuary. 

Our worthiness was soon recognized as we were rushed by the Phi Psi, the 
Delta Kappa Phi and the Sigma Phi Tau. Everything has a catch in it at 
Tech, as we were to find out to our sorrow. By the time our initiation was 
complete we wondered if an old fashioned war was not preferable to an initia- 
tion. 

After we recuperated from these shocks we were soon participating in 
various sports. In soccer we were represented by Crowley, Edmundson and Pick- 
ering. In basketball Crowley and Clark were mainstays of the team, Sherman 
played Junior Varsity. 

The need for class leaders necessitated the calling of a class election. 
The following officers being chosen: — President, Chris Edmundson; Vice 
President, Al Herzog; Secretary, Phyllis Jason; Treasurer, Ralph Clark.

THE mid-years menaced our careers but were eventually passed, and to our 
surprise with credit. 

Soon baseball and tennis will be strengthened by members of our class. 
And after these sports the Finals will bring to an end our first year at New 
Bedford Textile. Soon our freshman year will be over and we will return in 
the fall a wiser and more dignified group to help carry on the school and its 
programs. 

The graduation of the Seniors calls for our heartiest congratulations upon 
their completion of three years of extensive study and the carrying out of a 
successful social and athletic program. The Freshman class join in wishing 
them a successful future.

PHI PSI FRATERNITY 

THE opening of school in September saw the return of seventeen supporters 
of Phi Psi. Seventeen, all staunch and loyal, bent on making a banner 
year for Beta. 

No sooner had activities been under way than that well known "rush" 
week was observed. The big party down at Bates' cottage at Brant Island was 
a success. Fourteen fellows, seemingly ignorant of all pending disaster, pledged 
themselves to Phi Psi. 

Those worthy pilgrims were then given a real taste of probation. Who 
will ever forget the brilliant display of straw hats and bath robes seen in front 
of school every day for one whole week? Candy and cigarettes were also in 
abundance. 

The climax of "Probation" was street initiation. While the startled and 
perplexed population of New Bedford that happened to be out on that night is 
still having night mares, I am sure that none of us will ever forget the ridicu- 
lous antics of the darling youngsters, the great Paul Revere, the charming and 
attractive chorus girl, and all of the others. The remainder of the night was 
one of even greater horror. Blood-thirsty villains took these poor spirit-broken 
creatures out into the wilds of Sconticut Neck from where, after inflicting other 
cruel punishments on these lost souls, these same ruffians garnered great delight 
in taking the remains of the sorrowful crew, and dumping them out miles 
away in some God-fcrgotten places to be left to wend their way home as 
Providence saw fit. 

The third degree at Bradford Durfee Textile School and the banquet 
which followed at Luke's Lodge is still a pleasant memory to most of us. The 
food and entertainment were first rate. 

The annual public dance was held at the Reservation in Mattapoisett on 
December 26, 1933. The usual good time was enjoyed by all. On February 
21, 1933 a strictly private dance was held in New Bedford at the Gulf Hill 
Parlors. This was the great success it was meant to be, for when fellows of 
Phi Psi get together with the background of being brothers in the Greatest 
Textile Fraternity on earth they just can't help feeling glad to be alive even in 
such trying times as these. 

43 



THE FABRICATOR 19 3 3 

Phi Psi men are highly honored in Athletics. The soccer team enjoyed 
having such fellows as: Captain Al DeMarest, Norman Gobeil, Billy Clarke, 
Wm. McArdle, Joe Crowley, Ed Dupre, and was well managed by Howard 
Bates. In basketball we sported Billy Clarke as Captain, Al DeMarest, Ralph 
Clark, Joe Crowley, Ray Williams, Wm. McArdle, Norman Gobeil, Jimmie 
Lague, Henry Sherman and Dave York as manager. Last year's baseball squad 
saw on its roll call: Jimmie Lague, Wm. McArdle, Billy Clarke, Norman Gobeil, 
Al DeMarest, J. Munroe, Steve Delano, Ralph Clark, and Joe Crowley. The 
tennis squad was made up in part of brothers: Steve Delano, Ray Warner, 
Frank Mikus, E. Anderson, mgr. and Billy Clarke. Brother Preston Cook '31, 
acted as coach. 

Summer is fast approaching and plans for our annual farewell dance will 
soon be under way. The glorious event of May 26, 1932 will always be fresh 
in our memories. The warm friendship of brotherhood in Phi Psi shall always 
be dear to all of us and it is at times like these that we feel sad to be leaving 
active affairs at Beta in the near future. May fortune favor you in the future; 
good luck brothers and may you uphold the name and honor of the largest 
textile fraternity in the world.

AFTER having lost eleven members through graduation, Delta Chapter re- 
turned for the year of 1932-33 with the twelve worthy members, deter- 
mined more than ever to carry on the good work of the recent, but now alumni, 
members. 

We held our annual dinner and smoker, after the first few weeks of 
school, at the Fox Hill Gun Club, and a very enjoyable time was had by all. 
Alumni members, as well as instructors, were present to enjoy a fine dinner, 
and to talk things over. 

After "Rush Week" we found that we had eight new members, these 
being Raymond Ripley, Christopher Edmundson, Raymond Ward, Joseph 
Normile, Harold Brindley, Charles Boehler, George Maxim, and Clarke Gay. 

The Delta Chapter was represented in sports by Frank Cleveland, Roy 
Amaral, and Chris Edmundson.

In the Freshman class, our new members started things rolling by elect- 
ing Chris Edmundson to the presidency of the class. 

The Delta Chapter held one of its well known dances, early in November, 
and it was quite a successful affair, considering the competition that we were up 
against on the night of the dance. However, as usual, a good time was had 
by all. When again on February 17, we held another informal dance in the 
Gulf Hill Banquet Hall, and this affair proved to be very successful, and every- 
one present spent a most enjoyable evening. 

This March, the Delta Chapter pledged four new candidates, and they 
were duly initiated. The new members are: John Greaves, Jr., Henry Deptula, 
J. Edmund Kershaw, and William A. Pickering. 

A private dance was planned, for the members, which was held the 
latter part of March. All who attended were very glad to have done so. 

The Delta Chapter will lose two members through graduation, and we 
shall miss them in our work and play next year. We wish them, and all the 
other graduates, the best of luck and success, in whatever they may do. We 
hope that they will never forget the Delta Chapter, and the many pleasant con- 
nections that they have had with it. We know that they will carry on for the 
honor and traditions of the Delta Kappa Phi — the Oldest Textile School Frater- 
nity in America.

THE FABRICATOR 19 3 3 

This assertion in itself explains the success of this chapter during 1932- 
1933. 

This chapter, as do our other chapters, always receives wonderful co- 
operation. From our oldest charter member to our youngest and newest 
frater, each was anxious and ready to do his share. We shall forever be proud 
of our loyal alumni who have helped to promote the feeling of real fraternalism 
and fellowship among the younger fraters. Thanks to these alumni, the fact 
that there were but four active men did not, in the least, hamper the progress 
of the chapter. 

Our social activities began with the smoker, early in the school year and 
was held in conjunction with the Fall River chapter, at the New Bedford Hotel. 

Our big annual affair, the semi-private dance, was held February 21, at 
the Hotel Mellen in Fall River. Delegates were present from New York, Phila- 
delphia, Boston, Taunton, as well as the fraters from New Bedford and Fall 
River. Beautiful favors, with Sigma Phi Tau engraved on them were given to 
the lady-guests present. 

Our annual convention, a week-end affair, was held in New York. The 
convention consisted of numerous activities and climaxed with a formal 
dance at the Savov-Plaza, April 22. Several New Bedford fraters attended and 
everyone had a great time. 

With the coming graduation, three men will drop from our active roll to 
join the ever-increasing ranks of our alumni. They are "Al" Malick, Lou 
Brody, and Barney Cohen. 

Beta chapter of the Sigma Phi Tau Fraternity wishes them and all other 
graduates, "Good Luck, and the best of Success".

Why Malick had to watch his apparatus so closely?

What ties, other than fraternal, are there between Herstoff and Malick?

TEAMWORK 

TEAMWORK is an asset which all athletic teams more or less desire to get. It 
is an essential which cannot be overlooked. Great coaches spend time and 
money; men do strenuous exercises and go thru hard routines to acquire just 
one thing — teamwork. 

An illustration which has been previously quoted shows the importance 
of co-operation on an athletic field. Several years ago when the immortal 
Coach Rochne had the brilliant Four Horsemen, the team was playing a 
mediocre school. Without the service of their first string line, the illustrious 
Chevaliers were helpless. After the game Rochne said to his star players, "That 
was just to show you how far you would get without the seven mules in front 
of you". 

There, my friends, the value of teamwork was clearly and accurately 
denned.

THE New Bedford Textile Soccer team experienced a rather disastrous season 
compared to the previous years. The team won 4 and lost 4 and tied one 
for a total of 22 goals for and 16 goals against. The opposition was stiffer 
this year than anticipated, altho some of the defeats were unexpected. Manager 
Bates arranged a fine schedule and Coach Beardsworth's team should have finished 
with flying colors. The material was plentiful, but inexperienced. The mill 
men defeated such teams as Fitchburg Normal, Clark University, Harvard Jun- 
ior Varsity, and Tabor. The Tech squad lost to Durfee Tech, Worcester Poly- 
tech, and Vocational twice. The team managed to tie their rivals in the last 
game of the season.

N. B. T. S. — Tabor 

The Tech soccer eleven traveled to Marion for its first game of the season 
where they played the Tabor soccer team. The contest was a one-sided affair 
with the Marion outfit on the short end of a 5-0 score. The "prep" school 
kickers tried hard to break through the stonewall defense put up by captain De- 
Marest and Gobeil, but lacked both technique and experience. Billy Clarke 
opened the scoring for the visitors with a l<iw drive which had the "goalie" 
flatfooted. Cleveland on a pass from Edmundson found the net for the second 
tally. Clarke taking advantage of the air minded Tabor defense quickly added 
two more scores. Towards the end of the second half, Edmundson drove a 
hard shot into the corner of the net for the final score. The final whistle found 
the Taborites still trying to penetrate the rugged defense of the Tech team. 

N. B. T. S. — Vocational 

The Millmen played their second game at Battery Park against Vocational. 
The hard fighting Tech team went down to defeat by a 3-2 score. The State 
champion's forward line functioned smoothly and caused the ever alert Tech 
defense a good deal of trouble. The Millmen opened the scoring through the 
belated efforts of Gillette, who recovered a loose ball in front of the Voke 
goal. The leather bounded from a scrimmage nearby and Gillette shot the ball 
by the waiting goal tender. 

Richards, Voke end man, started the disastrous attack which proved fatal 
to the Millmen. He hooked a shot which struck the upright and bounded into 
the net. Balestracci added two more before the baffled defense settled down. 
Billy Clarke catching the Voke defense off balance dribbled through and sank 
the ball for the final marker for Textile. The Tech squad battled fiercely and 
the final whistle found the ball in Voke territory. Mello and Yosefek played a 
good defensive game while Clarke was best on the forward line. 

N. B. T. S. — Harvard Javees 

The Textile soccer team journeyed to Cambridge where they played the 
Harvard junior varsity. The game was played in a driving rainstorm. The 
field was soggy and full of water which prevented any brilliant offensive work. 
Aside from the wet pitch, the contest was a lively affair with the entire team 
with the exception of the goaltender, McArdle, trying to score, but a hard 
diving goalie, who preferred to squirm in the mud stopped many hard drives 
which were labelled for scores. 

The first quarter found both teams battling evenly. The opening of the 
second period saw the Millmen ahead when Edmundson slipped through the 
Crimson defense for the first tally of the game. The Tech forwards repeatedly 
penetrated the water-logged Crimson defense without avail. Two more scores 

51 



THE FABRICATOR 19 3 3 

were added for the Millmen. One came from the head of Pickering and the 
second from the toe of Edmundson. The final score proved to be 3-0 after 
the Harvard forward line had failed to successfully complete the swim through 
the strong Tech defense. 

N. B. T. S. — Fitchburg Normal 

The Tech soccer team playefi its fourth game of the season at Fitchburg 
against the Normal boys. The game was a regular rough and tumble affair, 
with exchange of fisticuffs and knock-outs galore. Before the final whistle 
ended the bloodshed five Tech players and four Normal boys went down for 
the count. The scoring was close with the Millmen nosing out the home team 
4-3. Billy Clarke started the fireworks in the first quarter when he drove 
home a neat center. Soon afterwards, Ponte of the Fitchburg team evened the 
score. In the second frame Clarke again found the net, this time through an 
aerial attach: a neat header which fooled the opposing goalkeeper completely. 
The second Normal score came off the foot of one of Tech's defense men, but 
the favor was soon returned when the left back for Fitchburg sank the leather 
for the Tech team. 

The final score for the Normal team came off the fist of Southworth, 
their centerforward. Late in the last period, Clarke turned in his third goal 
of the day for a victory for Textile. Mello and Clarke featured for the Whale- 
men. 

N. B. T. S. — Clark's University 

The Textile soccer team lived up to advance notice when it captured a 
3-1 decision over the Clark eleven on the Alumni Field in Worcester, but the 
manner in which the home team battled the Whalers was especially gratifying. 
The Millmen started off with a devastating attack and rolled up a pair of mark- 
ers in the first half and in the second period its final point, Clark's tally was 
registered in the second half. 

The Clark defense found it almost impossible to hinder the smooth work 
of the Tech forward line. It was shortly after the opening whistle that Clarke 
scored with a drive that whizzed by Eddie Forrest, goalie of the Clark team for 
the first point of the game. Later Cleveland propelled the leather into the 
corner of the net for the second score. 

The final Tech marker came when Clarke broke loose on a spectacular 
dash for the Clark goal, dribbled neatly by the defense and with the goalie 
at his mercy, pounded home the counter. The Clark lone score came from the 
penalty spot. Anish climaxing the scoring with a successful kick. The re- 
mainder of the game the Tech defense held the ever pressing forward line of the 
Clark eleven. Clarke and Cleveland featured.

19 3 3 THE FABRICATOR 

N. B. T. S. — Worcester Polytech 

The Millmen journeyed to Worcester and lost a game which should have 
been at least a draw. The team minus the service of Coach Beardsworth played 
poor but desperate soccer. Aside from a slippery field, the day was ideal for 
the game. The teams battled evenly for two periods. The Tech defense 
was functioning perfectly. 

The opening score came from Clarke's right foot, a hard drive which the 
goalie failed to see. The Millmen with an easy victory in sight grew careless 
and let the inside right of the Worcester team lob the leather in front of tho 
goal. McArdle misjudging the wind let the ball slip by him for a score. 

The Tech team was desperate and worked bitterly to break the tie, but 
Gobeil, overanxious, handled the ball in the penalty area and the tally was the 
deciding factor of the game. Clarke, Mello and Cleveland starred for the 
Millmen. 

N. B. T. S. — Durfee Textile 

The Tech soccer team played its seventh game of the season against their 
Fall River rival at the latter's home field. The game was a close affair with the 
Durfee Millmen winning in the last few minutes of play 2-1. The Whalers 
due to its desperate defense work kept the home team from scoring until the 
"breaks" went against them. 

The offense of the Millmen missed plenty of chances to score. The for- 
ward wall penetrated the Dwfee defense time and time again only to see their 
shots frustrated by some magical appearance of the goalie. Jasoniek and Clarke 
played a good defense game, while Cleveland featured on the offense. 

N. B. T. S. — Vocational 

The Textile soccer team meeting Vocational for the second time went to 
a 2-1 defeat in a hard fast game. A high wind prevailed thruout the game 
making teamwork almost impossible. The first marker of the game proved to 
be one of nature's flukes. Tobojka centered from the middle of the field: the 
ball going high, struck a wind current and bounded into the net. Soon after- 
wards Tobojka, dribbling down the field, booted a cross which went into the 
net for the second tally for the Voke team. 

Tech's lone score came late in the first half when Clarke received a pass 
from Cleveland, dribbled thru the defense and found the net. The Second half 
saw no scoring. The Millmen with the wind advantage missed repeatedly. 
The Tech defense functioned smoothly thruout the game. 

N. B. T. S. — Durfee Textile 

The Tech soccer team playing its return game with their rivals managed to 
eke out a draw for its last game of the season. The visitors opened the scoring

with a low drive which McArdle let go thru his hands. The Millmen's defense 
was baffled for three-quarters of the game. The visitors managed to run up a 
comfortable lead before the Whalers had a chance to settle down. Clarke with 
the help of Cleveland saved the game for Tech. He scored all of Textiles three 
goals. Jasoniek and Mello featured on the defense for the Millmen.

N. B. T. S. — Alumni 

The Textile basketball team opened its season by defeating the Alumni 
28-22. The Alumni, made up of past stars put up a grand battle only to have 
the younger boys eke out a win. The combination of Billy Clarke and McArdle 
proved the downfall of the Alumni.

19 3 3 THE FABRICATOR 

In the last period the Alumni made a final drive which just fell short of a 
glorious victory. They were aided by Galligan and the Tripp twins and 
brought the score to within two points of a tie, but the Millmen drew away 
on a final spurt and the contest was decidedly in favor of the Tech team. 

N. B. T. S. — R. I. C. E. 

The Tech basketeers played its first scheduled game against the Rhode Island 
College of Education. The Millmen outplayed the visitors in every department 
of the game winning by a 50-17 score. The Tech men put on a fine display 
of shooting and passing to take a commanding lead in the first half. Clarke 
with 20 points led the scorers. Clark, Crowley and McArdle came in close 
seconds with 10 points apiece. 

N. B. T. S. — Lowell Textile 

Journeying to Lowell, the Tech squad took an 80-29 trouncing. The 
Lowell team proved far superior to the Millmen. The smooth passing and 
accurate shooting of the home team sunk the visitors before they had a chance 
to see what was happening. The Millmen in spite of the tremendous handicap 
put up a stubborn fight, but could not penetrate into the opponents' territory. 
Ralph Clark and Crowley were the Whalers' leading scorers while Athaneas and 
Savard scored 38 and 21 points respectively for their team. 

N. B. T. S. — St. John's Prep 

Returning from Lowell, Tech basketeers played St. John's Prep, its second 
game in successive nights. The Millmen were defeated 35-23. Aided by some 
fine shooting on the part of MacDermott, St. John led by a wide margin at 
the end of the first half. The visitors put on a strong rally in the second half 
with Clarke and McArdle showing the way but the lead established by the 
home team proved too large an obstacle to overcome. 

N. B. T. S. — Vocational 

Vocational overwhelmed Textile 48-20 in the first battle of the season 
between the rivals for honors of the Textile gymnasium. The Trade 
school started slowly but opened up a big lead before the end of the first half 
and in the last two periods, the Tech team was buried under an avalanche of 
baskets. The Millmen fought hard all the way but never had a chance when 
the fast passing Voke lads hit their stride. Ralph Clark was leading scorer 
with Billy Clarke playing a fine defensive game. 

N. B. T. S. — Becker College 

A hard fighting Tech squad again went down to defeat at the hands of 
the Becker quintet in a slashing game. The one-sided score 45-23 did not

lessen the spirit of the boys who fought right up to the final whistle. Tech 
got away to a poor start on account of the slippery floor and never had a chance 
to break even, but managed to give the home team a good run for their money. 
Taylor and Allen played a fine game for the winners while Billy Clarke and 
Crowley of the Whaling city aggregation starred for the losers. 

N. B. T. S. — Bryant Stratton 

The Millmen travelled to Providence to receive another setback, this time 
at the hands of the Bryant Stratton business five. The Tech team were the victims 
of circumstances and the home team made the best of it. After the first period 
the Tech team didn't have a chance. The Indians scalped all the Millmen in 
sight. The final score being 52-17. Clarke played his usual strong game for 
Textile with Swanson leading the Stratton men. 

N. B. T. S. — Durfee Tech 

The Tech basketeers won their second game of the season at the expense of 
Durfee Textile by a 30-24 score at the Millmens' home floor. At the end of the 
first quarter Durfee led by the score of 6-1. The local squad later took the lead 
after Billy Clarke and Crowley had sunk two baskets apiece and were never 
headed thruout the remainder of the game. The defensive work of Clarke and 
Williams was outstanding while Crowley lead the scorers with 1 1 points. Billy 
Clarke was a close second with 10 points. 

N. B. T. S. — R. I. C E. 

New Bedford Textile Basketeers broke into the winning column again 
when they travelled to Providence to play Rhode Island College of Education. 
The score was 51-26 and the results were mixed with a few scrimmages on 
account of the referee's leniency. The Whalers took lead after the first period 
and they were never in danger of being headed. Joe Crowley led the scorers 
with 23 points. 

N. B. T. S. — Vocational 

Vocational made it two straight over Tech and swept the annual series 
trouncing the Millmen 39-18. It was a fast rough game with Williams and 
Janis exchanging blows. 

It was a rather heated battle all the way, altho the Trade school was 
always in the lead and held a 21-9 advantage at the half. Tech threatened in 
the first few minutes of the third period but lost Billy Clarke, Crowley and 
Ralph Clark on fouls. From this point on it was a one-sided affair with the win- 
ners rapidly piling up a lead. McArdle played a nice game for the Millmen.

N. B. T. S. — Becker. 

Becker Business five defeated Tech 53-49 in a spirited game with the out- 
come undecided until the final whistle. At the beginning of the game Becker 
scored 10 points before the Millmen had a chance to get started, and at the end 
of the quarter the Worcester team was leading 1 7-9. During the second quarter 
the local team found the hoop frequently enough to climb up to within three 
points of the winners. Crowley was the main factor thruout the game scoring 
23 points. Taylor for the visitors was a close second with 22 points. 

N. B. T. S. — R. I. C. P. 

Tech basketeers defeated R. I. C P. 45-38 on the losers home floor. Crow- 
ley was high scorer with 24 points for the winners. Ruggers was high scorer 
for the losers with 26 points. 

The game was fastly played and Tech had the better of the play. They 
took lead at the very beginning and held it thruout the game. The score was 
19-16 in the Millmen's favor at the half and they increased their lead in the 
second half so they had no worry during the remainder of the game. 

N. B. T. S. — Bryant-Stratton 

The Millmen lost their second game of the season to Bryant-Stratton the 
Providence school winning 48-35. The visitors were never headed. They 
took an early lead when their center Collison went on a scoring spree. He 
accounted for 1 6 points. Joe Crowley's play was the one bright spot on the 
Textile team. He led the Tech attack with 10 points. Billy Clarke played a 
fine defensive game. 

N. B. T. S. — Durfee Tech 

Durfee Tech defeated New Bedford Tech in the second game of the sea-

and 13 points respectively. The Whalers entered the second half at a 30-5

Billy Clarke's floorwork was superb.

We all remember the day that Mr. Cromp- 
ton made a "Ripping Success" in the Me- 
chanical Dept. 



Dot: — "How many cigar.ettes do you 
smoke a day?" 

Billy: — "Oh! any given amount." 



Hiller: — "Sorry I'm late, but I sprained 
my ankle." 

Mr. Broadfoot: — "Oh! another lame ex- 
cuse."

THEY SAY THAT By H. w. 

Billy Clarke used the "script" system of payment long before Roose- 
velt entered the White House. 

DeMarest eagerly awaits the repeal of the prohibition amendment — so 
that he may do more acting and less talking. 

Cohen in his sophomore year was told there was money in the quick turn- 
over of cars. 

Lague enjoys thinking of what he might have done more than what he 
knows how to do. 

Ponte is guilty of murder — he kills the English language. 

McArdle is the nuts — and warm at that. 

Gatonska is like the combination of the Great Wall of China and a mule — 
very thick and always kicking. 

Ink wells grow in coat pockets. 

Co-eds are designing women. 

Distance lends enchantment — Ohio should be far enough away, Statia. 
Class examples of advertising — 

Hanson — Ivory Soap — 99.44% pure. 

Delano — Murad — Be nonchalant. 

Ruth Viera — Woodbury soap — The skin you love to touch. 

York — Crisco — -Fat in the can. 

Bates — Camels and Chesterfields — I'd walk a mile for a camel — they 
satisfy. 

Williams — Herpecide Hair Tonic — Herpecide will save it. 
Things I never knoodle now — 

The Hall of Fame is not named Gordon. 

There was a spring flower named Kuczewski. 

Warner is not really conceited. 

Sullivan is not a French name. 

Munroe was not married after all. 

Mikus has been awake. 

Gentilhomme can play the piano. 

That the Morris Plan is not a bank. 

Lague was going into the florist business featuring in red-ferns. 

Brody is a family man — he furnishes homes. 

Hynes is the most even tempered fellow in the class — always sore. 

That Einstein's theory is used for reducing salaries. 

A cut in the basketball squad means the managers cut. 

If you lose your glasses you can not teach steam. 

That Frodyma is "God's" gift to women — but as Ripley would say 
"Believe it or not." 

That Textile is a "rest home".

THE FABRICATOR 1933 



A LITTLE OF "SLAM" — By C. W. 

When will H. B. grow up and act like a man (give him the benefit of 
any doubts) when he is with a lady in a downtown eating place in the presence 
of respectable people? 

Do we all remember a threat made by G. H. to get a certain gang? I 
hear that they got him! Ha, Ha. 

Someone said the truth hurts B. C. more than he cares to admit. 

"D" enlisted the services of "K" to dig up the past of certain friends. As 
a result his own past has been well aired. One incident I hope no one ever finds 
out about the time he tried to show how a swan dive can be executed in 6 or 8 
inches of water. And another one I wish shall never be mentioned is his using 
a bandaged head to gain sympathy of a member of the fair sex and finally getting 
a date. 

J. P. has been called the big shot in a small town (all noise but no ex- 
plosion) . 

I wonder if "G" knows how his best pal gave him the double cross? ta-ta. 

We wish H. B. a lot of luck in his dangerous career. He goes heavy for 
home-wrecking they say. 

Why does one certain fellow insist on going over his souvenirs every once 
in a while. 

I hope no one ever forgets the red letter day when "D" left school and 
went home before he got mad. There was peace immediately after he left. 

Why can't a certain member see any other member going out with one of 
his girl acquaintances without passing remarks? Jealous maybe. 

Some day we may square ourselves with A. M. for taking unfair advan- 
tage of the opportunity afforded him. Does "R" know all about "F"? 

It seems "J" got put down for squealing. 

What blackguard denied guilt in a certain robbery shortly after causing 
a "smell" about a raid on him. 

When will H and F learn some people never forget nor forgive? It pays 
to be human. 

They say "D" never loses his temper. It is a wonder how his racquet 
stands the abuse after each little set up shot that "D" so often misses. 

They say that B. C. proves that "When the cat is away the mice will play". 

Why did C. B. A. and A play a dirty, dirty trick on "D". 

What is so secret about rubies, Al? 

What two swell heads are being made smaller all along?
